In her debut race for the Aggies, the freshman broke the Texas A&M school record in the women's 1,000 meters at the Reveille Invitational. Watson's time of 2:42.12 already ranks No. 7 on the all-time collegiate indoor list. That shouldn't shock since her PR in the event, a 2:40.72 from March of last year, is better than the current collegiate record of 2:40.79 set by Oklahoma State's Kaela Edwards in 2017.
"I'm very happy, but not complacent where I'm at right now," she said. "We've been training hard all fall, so I know the hard work is paying off from my results today. Knowing that I didn't get down to this time until last March, and it's only December, it shows that I'm a lot stronger than I was last year and I'm capable of so much more this season."
Aggies junior Jazmine Fray, who set the school record of 2:43.15 a year ago, finished second to Watson in 2:45.81.
They lost how many??? After losing 312 consecutive games, the Carroll Academy girls basketball team won for the first time last weekend, edging Immaculate Conception 29-27 in double overtime.
The Tennessee school, which has six girls on its roster, started playing girls basketball in 2005. With a school enrollment of 44, every high school girl plays on the basketball team.
Kaitlyn Evans finished with 22 points and 16 rebounds to lead the way for the Lady Jags. Her 3-pointer tied the game at 22 to send it to overtime.
Randy Hatch has been head coach or an assistant for all 312 losses.
"They want to win, but they want to play," Hatch said. "They find just as much fun in competing as the scoreboard. Whatever the scoreboard says, it says. They just know they are going to get to play again. The last game of the season is what gets them."
New Jersey changes: New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association schools voted 218-79 last week to allow a 10th regular-season game, which may lead to the revision of the current football playoff format.
Proposed playoff changes will go before the NJSIAA's Executive Committee next spring. The new plan extends the postseason beyond sectional championships but stops short of playing to a true state champion.
